Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired -
Before making any decision, stop and think with this little word, HALT, especially if you are feeling stressed out, hungry, angry, lonely or tired.  It is easy to allow our emotions to affect our decision-making and often that is not good! It has really helped me in the past and present.

Actually, I really am a homebody. And, now, most of my decision making involves what to make my husband and myself for supper and more importantly what color do I paint next!! I love to experiment and am always looking for more ways to dabble.

Yesterday I accepted an invitation to go photo-shooting with a friend. We drove about photographing buildings, trees and whatever hit our fancy. It was a great outing! And really put me in the mood to paint!

Here is an old barn that I did on location  on one of our earlier jaunts!

Thanks for stopping by - Have a great week and do some exploring!!


  1. Great advice! As a matter of fact..I was visiting a church awhile back.
    and the Pastor mentioned the same thing!
    The barn is beautiful, I love old barns,old houses,
    anything that speaks of a better time.
    I really enjoy your blog, and getting to see all the lovely art work
    Blessings on you, and keep painting!..and blogging.

  2. Thanks! I really needed your feedback today!

  3. I really appreciate that you want to glorify God with your art. How fun also going on a jaunt, looking at the beauties of the natural world. Your picture of the barn is beautiful. I look forward to seeing more of your work. Blessings to you!

  4. Patti, thanks for the note! I hope you continue to enjoy my posts. God is at the center of my life. It makes me happy to know others have him in their lives too!
